Two people have been charged following a collision that killed a nearby pedestrian.
The charges stem from a collision that took place on Dec. 16 at the intersection of Tecumseh Road East at Roseville Garden Drive.
Windsor police allege that a red Dodge pickup truck was traveling eastbound on Tecumseh when it entered the intersection. At the same time police allege a westbound Chrysler Intrepid was stopped at the intersection attempting a left hand turn when the collision occurred.
As a result of the collision, police say one of the vehicles jumped the curb and struck a pedestrian. The 43-year-old man was transported to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
According to police, the 34-year-old driver of the pickup is charged with red light fail to stop. The 71-year-old driver of the Intrepid is charged with turn not in safety.
Both men will appear before a court in March.
Police have spoken with several witnesses, but are still asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to come forward.
